Good Evening,

I am need some help ( if it's possible to even due ), in being able to look online at any time, and find out which Gas Stations in my city , Sell specific Scratchoff Games that I'm wanting to play.


This would definitely save time, as some gas stations are either sold out , OR don't sell/carry certain scratchoffs.


I'm in Tennessee , if this helps in finding a way to locate the gas stations ( via online ) carry the games I am looking to play.


Thanks so much,

really appreciate the help

    I wish that was possible. I feel the same way. When I am on a mission to play i Just look for the lotto signs in the windows of the gas stations ot know they have lotto and just go in. There is no app that tells you which place has which tickets. But you can send a F.O.I.L. request to Tenn lottery and ask which retailers opened the book you are playing. In other words if you want a certain scratch off just ask which retailers have scanned the book and that would give you a list in your town of even the state. Hope that helps you.

      As rgse90 said, you should be able to contact the lottery and get a list of what games the gas stations carry. Or, you could always get their phone numbers and just call and ask and make your own spreadsheet. Slower to do so but better than wasting your time visiting if they don't have your favorite game. That's what most people used to do in the old days, until the lotteries' websites started incorporating "retailer finders."

      Most of the time all the gas stations in that city will carry the same games; however, they will differ in stock and rotation of new games depending on their level of scratch-off sales volume.

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
